Hi Rose Marie,

To download Winamp app via Ninite page:

Winamp updated to

Do NVDA+Ctrl+f
search on the page:

Check this check box called Winamp .

Search on the page the word get

this a button
Get Your Ninite

Click enter on this button to download Ninite .exe file.

Just run the Ninite .exe and relax. Ninite's automation will install the apps in the background and without any toolbars or junk.

Use tab to move in this dialog.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Wait a moment, once the installation is finished just tab, and hit the Close button.

Run Winamp shortcut on your desktop

A first dialog box appears:
Use tab to move in this dialog.

Add Media to Library dialogue You currently have nothing in your library. To add media, select from the options below.

Add Media to Library button

Just hit space bar so that this dialogue does not appear again.

Just hit Close button to close this dialog.

Learn More About Winamp button

Wait a moment...

Dialog 1: Opening Dialog: Winamp v5.8 Build 3660 Setup Choose the look and feel for your Winamp.

This first item is selected by default:
Bento Skin
down arrow until:
Winamp Classic
Tabing and hit the Next button
Dialog 2: Opening Dialog: Winamp v5.8 Build 3660 Setup² Select the file types you want to be associated with Winamp. To associate files with Winamp on this version of Windows, you need to go to 'Set Default Programs' in the Control Panel once Winamp's setup is complete. Note: This can also be accessed via Winamp's 'File Types'
preferences page.

Launch Winamp for Audio CDs check box checked (by default) Show Winamp in the folder context menus in Windows Explorer check box checked (by default) Enable Winamp Agent check box not checked (by default)

For me all options by default are fine!
Tabing and hit the Finish button

If you are in the main window of Winamp
To exit Winamp, just hit context menus(applications key) and choose the option Exit Alt+F4 Here you will find other options to configure Winamp, I leave it to your criteria, I am not an expert.

Probably, if you do not work the Winamp do Shift + tab to put the focus in the main window.

Last thing...

If you have a USB device, a dialog appears:
Winamp Portable Music Player Support
Choose yes or no, button, but the truth to me did not work, but, do not worry, if you close the computer, you will have to close the dialogue.

I know that there is a NVDA add-on for Winamp, but it is discontinued by the author, but it could be that it helps you:

I had the classic skin but it still didn't work. That's why I went back to the older version.

For me, the new Winamp behaves like the old one, including being able to exit the program with alt+F4 as I have always done. I am using the Winamp Classic skin, that might make a difference.
Bye for now!

Hi, everyone,

I tried exiting winamp but this new version isn't responding. Is
there a different way to get out? I tried alt f-4 and x but it didn't work.
To be honest, I hate this version of winamp!
